Know More about this tour

After a pick up from your hotel, the tour begins with a visit to the giraffe center. Here you see the magnificent creatures and learn why they are endangered. You will also learn their behaviours, traits and more conservation education. To cap the visit, you get the chance to feed themunder the supervision of a trained staff member.

Then head to the elephant orphanage which is only open for a short period each day. Here you will learn more about the baby elephants and what led them to be orphans.You will get more information on raising them and the efforts being made to re-introduce them back to the wilderness.

After this, you will have about an hour for lunch (own expense), then you will go to the Nairobi national park through the main gate for a 3-hour game drive. Your guide will be aiming to show you as much variety of animals as possible. If you're lucky, you may spot the rhinos and lions getting ready for the evening. We use a safari van with a pop up roof for easier game viewing and not a small saloon car.

At around 5pm, you will depart the park and be brought back to your hotel.

    Nice to have all the entrance tickets included. We could see a lot of animals in the park. I would recommend this for any solo traveller like myself.

    We had a fantastic day, every detail was catered for. David was an excellent guide, he felt more like a family friend, supporting any requests. Seeing, touching and getting so close to beautiful giraffes and baby elephants was a very special experience for my husband and I. We had a visit to the bead factory, people with beautiful hearts. Finally the safari in the National park a great way to end a day. This was a very memorable experience we can highly recommend! It.

    My guide was talkative, friendly and had lots of interesting information to share. He also knew when to give me time to make my own choices. Great day in Nairobi.

    It was awesome. Albert was great. He was a little late but we were the only ones on the tour and we arrived at 5:45 am. He allowed us to sleep in the truck and worked very hard to find me a rhino. He was amazing.

    Very interesting visit at the Giraffe shelter and friendly guide.
    Nairobi National Park is a good option if you're short on time

    If you looking for a one day wilderness tour out of Nairobi this is the one to take. Our guide Sammy was first rate. Knowledgeable of Nairobi in general as well as all of the local fauna. He was a warm and cordial guide who made sure that all of our expectations were met and exceeded. When we got to Nairobi NP he took on roads few other groups traveled and pointed out numerous animals and birds. Would absolutely take this tour again and would ask for Sammy!

    On our first trip to Nairobi we were looking for a good day trip and this one really delivered! Sammy the guide was engaging and knowledgeable. What was a pleasant surprise was that he offered a choice of lunch venues and the village was a nice place. He was also patient and never in a rush. Be aware traffic can be bad so be flexible, and don't expect to be back by a certain time. Saw lots of different animals on the safari. Very reasonably priced and all entrance fees are included. Highly recommended!
